A special Disney Mothers Day! Ready for a Fun run? Yes!! #Disneysmmc

My Sunday at the Disney Media Mom's Conference started (not so) bright and early (6 a.m.) because I signed up to do the GoGo Fun Run, Sponsored by GoGo squeeze. My husband always talks about the tranquility of the parks in the early morning hours, he knows this because of the past several years of attending Star Wars weekend. He’ll typically get up at 2:30 a.m. and head over to the Studio’s to get in whatever line he needs to get in. It’s a beautiful sight to see what is normally a bustling and busy theme park sitting quietly in the still of the night.
I’m not a runner by any stretch but I wanted to take this opportunity to get to see something I would not normally get to experience. It was called a run but you didn’t necessarily have to, I walked while others ran and it was all good. We made our way around Epcot and seeing Epcot in the dawn was stunning. It’s a beautiful park to begin with but with the sky behind it lighting it up in a really cool orangey purple it really looked wonderful.
We ended our run at the Butterflies on the Go butterfly garden, and I can’t help but thinking about my husband again…..he’s petrified of butterflies. (Luckily I am not :)
This is an exhibit my daughter and I always make our way into when we’re down here and the Flower and Garden Festival are going on. We leave the big chicken outside where he’s safe from the threat of the butterflies! 
 From Epcot we made our way back to the hotel to get ready for our goodbye breakfast. Breakfast sponsored by Disney Consumer Products—Imagicademy was wonderful. I can’t complain about any of the food we were fed at the conference, it was all wonderful and different and we never left anywhere hungry. I’ve never had as much food in a cone that wasn’t ice cream as I did over these past few days! Food in a cone is a wonderful idea.
During breakfast up on the big screen we were treated by pictures we had taken and tweeted over the past couple of days. And I was happy and proud to see my family with Hiro and Baymax up on the screen, I was delighted to see several of my pictures up on the screen, it really made my Mother’s Day even more special. After breakfast we were given quite a delightful surprise a performance by Orlando’s own VoicePlay

They appeared on the 4th season of The Voice and we’re absolutely fantastic. They instantly grabbed my daughter’s attention when the mentioned they just released a series of a cappella video game covers. My little gamer and savvy internet user quickly looked them up and was bopping her head up and down to the music. This was really a special surprise, these guys are wonderfully talented singers and performers and they were really funny as well. You could feel a sense of brotherly love between them it really came through with their performance.
And finally we were treated by a skit that hit a little close to home with us and that was given by the Disney's Imagicademy. It involved a mother and daughter and the daughter was a budding artist and it just followed her along her path as a budding artist to an artist. It hit me because that’s what I’m living right now. My daughter loves to draw and has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil. We’ve always encouraged her to draw and help her talent grow and who knows maybe one day she’ll be drawing feature length animations for Disney or Pixar.
 I’m excited to see what the future holds for my little girl and this skit really made this Mother’s Day a little more special. After breakfast we gave our goodbye’s to each other and it got a little weepy but we all had fun and will all keep in touch and hopefully I’m lucky enough to see them all again if I’m lucky enough to be invited back. We had a wonderful time and experienced things we never thought we’d get to do and I’m glad we had the opportunity to do it.

 Our Saturday started off bright and early. We were up at 6 a.m. to get ready to head over to the Magic Kingdom for our family ride experience on Dumbo. We didn’t know what to expect and were excited to see what we had in store for us when we arrived at the park. We were taken into the Magic Kingdom via a back entrance and it was neat to see some of the behind the scenes things that are well hidden away from the guests.

Well the day is here! With butterflies in my stomach I headed down to the conventions center at the Yacht and Beach Club, I was off to learn more about Disney and make some great new friends. This was so exciting!
To start our first official conference day, we were greeted with a lovely healthy breakfast, an amazing spread that include an make your own omelet bar, and loads of other breakfast favorites. As we enjoyed our breakfast we learned how Disney is making the food they serve us in the parks more healthy. They are also working to make the food more allergy friendly.
